Reverse Osmosis is the process of forcing water through a permeable membrane, where the membrane traps contaminants, allowing only water to pass through.

Reverse Osmosis is an increasingly popular, safe and cost-effective way to maintain and provide pure water to your home or business.

The water might meet the regulated standards but they might not meet your personal standard of pure, clean water.
